Apps go free all the time, and often, the reason is that the developer cannot get enough folks to pay for it. Sometimes, however, great, thriving apps shake off their price tags for a very limited time, and djay 2 – one of the most popular apps for the wannabe DJ on the App Store – has just done exactly that. Usually priced at $1.99 for the iPhone version, it’s the very first time that developer algoriddim has offered djay 2 for free along with a massive update with tons of new features for both iPhone and iPad, and if you’re interested in mixing some of your favorite tunes on the virtual decks, be sure to check the details below.
The original djay app for iPhone and iPad was hugely successful, and certainly benefited from being among those early runners during the App Store’s fledgling stages. But since then, algoriddim has taken things back to the drawing board and developed an excellent follow-up to the original, and having first dropped last summer, is now free of charge.
In case you hadn’t already picked up, djay 2 is as close to a real-life DJ experience as you can get on iOS, and with a slick, eye-catching user interface and a seemingly endless list of features to boot, it’s no wonder many consider this app to be the very best in its class.
With the app seeing a massive version 2.5 update today, there’s no reason to not pick up the app at all. Here’s the complete changelog of the update for iPhone and iPad:
- Spotify Integration
- All-New Audio FX Section
- New FREE Samples Pack by Milk & Sugar
- Overall Improvements
You can mix and blend, tweak the tempo and add a variety of different effects, and while you get a sizeable batch of special audio effects as standard, you can also snap up a few more by means of in-app purchase.
djay 2 integrates nicely with both iTunes and Spotify, and although you will require a premium subscription for the latter service, djay 2 users can enjoy a special, no-strings 7-day free trial.
If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at a spot of DJing and or mixing, but never had the equipment required to get up and running, then djay 2 is your free ticket to becoming the next Tiësto.
Please note, however, that while the iPhone edition is currently free for a very limited time, the iPad version will still set you back $4.99.
